Interactive Information Seeking, Behaviour and Retrieval

Ian Ruthven (Editor), Diane Kelly (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Information retrieval (IR) is a complex human activity supported by sophisticated systems. Information science has contributed much to the design and evaluation of previous generations of IR system development and to our general understanding of how such systems should be designed and yet, due to the increasing success and diversity of IR systems, many recent textbooks concentrate on IR systems themselves and ignore the human side of searching for information. This book is the first text to provide an information science perspective on IR.
